Clear or solid, in my opinion, is simply a grower's choice.

Place dendrobium keikis and small dendrobiums like the ones I potted in the same light as the mother plant was grown. Dendrobiums enjoy abundant light and do best when grown at 2000 - 2500 footcandles.

Good luck to you.

Thank you so much... I didn't realise that dendrobium roots don't need light... I will leave it as it is... in it's small pot with lots of light... it has 2 small shoots so I will look forward to watching these grow in to canes... hopefully it will flower next year
